The Science Behind Acne Scar Removal

Our procedures for acne scar removal use two advanced technologies, the ZoomScan Er:YAG 2940 nm laser and Forever Young BBL. Both technologies have unique mechanisms of action, and our medical providers select the appropriate technique or combine the two based on your specific needs and the depth and type of acne scars. At South Coast MedSpa, we provide comprehensive solutions for individuals seeking effective treatment for acne scars and skin pigmentation concerns.

Our advanced lasers are designed to cater to all skin types, and tones, ensuring safe and effective acne scar removal. By utilizing multiple modalities, we precisely target different layers of the skin, effectively removing scars and promoting the growth of fresh, radiant skin. We have developed a specialized procedure specifically tailored for darker skin tones, prioritizing safety and maximizing outcomes. South Coast MedSpa is a global leader in treating acne scars for patients from diverse backgrounds and all corners of the world. Trust us to rejuvenate your skin and restore your confidence with laser acne scar removal in San Diego.


The ZoomScan Er:YAG 2940 nm laser technology works by targeting the outermost layer of the skin, the epidermis. The laser delivers micro-thermal zones of energy that vaporize the damaged skin cells, leaving the surrounding healthy tissue intact. The body’s natural healing process then begins to promote the growth of new, healthy skin cells. This process helps to reduce the appearance of scars and improve the skin’s texture and tone.

Forever Young BBL

Forever Young BBL is a BroadBand Light technology that utilizes multiple wavelengths of light to target specific skin concerns. It delivers light energy to the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are essential for maintaining healthy, youthful-looking skin. Forever Young BBL also targets the melanin in the skin, reducing hyperpigmentation and improving skin tone.


Morpheus8, powered by SCMS’s advanced radiofrequency technology, is a revolutionary RF microneedling treatment that drastically boosts the effectiveness of acne scar removal in Newport Beach. By using RF energy to heat tissue underneath the skin, Morpheus8 stimulates collagen production, effectively reducing the appearance of acne scars. This non-invasive treatment offers a safe and effective alternative to traditional methods, improving the overall texture and appearance of the skin.

Your Complete Acne Scar Removal Experience

To prepare for your acne scar removal, it is important to avoid sun exposure and certain medications, such as aspirin and ibuprofen, which can increase the risk of bleeding. Arrive with a clean face, free of makeup or skincare products. Our medical providers will provide you with further instructions on how to prepare for your specific treatment.

During a session of laser acne scar removal in San Diego, you will be comfortably seated or lying down. Our medical provider will apply a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort. They will use the ZoomScan laser, Forever Young BBL, or both to target your acne scars. The length of the session will depend on the size and severity of the area being treated.

Side Effects
Side effects of acne scar removal are typically minimal and temporary. You may experience redness, swelling, and mild discomfort, similar to a mild sunburn. These side effects typically subside within a few days. Our medical providers will provide you with aftercare instructions to minimize the risk of any potential side effects.

Downtime after acne scar removal is minimal, with most patients able to resume their daily activities immediately after the treatment. However, you may experience mild redness and swelling for a few days. Our medical providers will provide you with aftercare instructions, including the use of sunscreen and avoiding certain skincare products.

The results will vary depending on the severity of the scarring and the treatment used. You may notice an improvement in your skin texture immediately after the treatment, with continued improvement over weeks as your body produces new collagen. The results are long-lasting with proper skincare maintenance.

The number of follow-up treatments needed will depend on the severity of your acne scarring and the treatment used. Our medical providers will discuss your individualized treatment plan with you, including the recommended number of follow-up treatments to achieve optimal results.
